The budget allocation is agreed between our school and the Local Authority at the beginning of each financial year. Detail of how this money is used to support children and young people with SEND is shown below. This is monitored each term by the Governing Body.
This is used to support children and young people with SEND in a variety of ways including:
- additional support from teachers and teaching assistants. This might be as part of whole class lessons or small group and individual support out of class.
- additional resources specific to the needs of individuals, for example Toe by Toe and Word Wasp (individual reading and spelling programmes)
- specialist programmes to support children with their need, for example speech and language programmes or movement programmes (to support the development of motor skills) Most of these are run by trained school staff and we sometimes pay external specialists to deliver programmes in school
- training for staff to enable them to provide the best possible for pupils
The school funding formula is generated to include financial provision to specifically support pupils’ individual special educational needs and disabilities.
This funding is prioritised and tailored to ensure small steps of progress are continually made by all learners.
For pupils with a high level of need, ‘Costed Provision Maps’ are created detailing support and resources provided in school. This builds a portfolio of the progress each child makes and additional funding and financial support can be applied for from the Local Authority.
Detailed assessments and target tracking ensure that all learners achieve and make progress at our school.
